The List: The Best New Gear to Buy Right Now

It’s time for our second edition of The List. If you missed out on the first entry in this ongoing series earlier this summer, the gist is simple. The List is a semi-regular compilation of anything and everything under the sun — mostly #menswear-related — that catches the eye of your Style Guide team of one. Ranked in no particular order, it’s simply a roundup of the best gear to buy right now. From stylish leather watches to classic summer sneakers and essential travel gear, we’re going to cover a bit of everything. To follow along with my style minute-by-minute in the meantime, check out my Instagram account. Enjoy today’s List, and we’ll see you on the other side.

The List: All the Gear You Need to Shop During June

Best everyday carry for guys

From stylish LSTN Sound Co. headphones via Bespoke Post to a sharp Daniel Wellington watch and a handsome valet tray from Billykirk, this is the sort of gear you’ll find on The List.

As a menswear writer, I come across a fair bit of, well, stuff. From my personal shopping to planning out the #OOTD series and Style Pick of the Week entries here at The Style Guide, it’s an ongoing endeavor to sort through different sites to find products that 1) I’d wear and 2) I think you might enjoy. That’s what it’s all about, right? With that being said, there are only so many hours in the day — and there’s only so much of my writing you likely want to read (I kid, I kid).  That brings me to the real point of today’s post — we’re kicking off a brand-new series here on the blog.

Sutro Shoes Inc.

It’s called The List, and it’s simply that: A collection of intriguing finds, surprising items, stylish summer footwear, cool accessories, … anything that should be of interest to a reader like yourself, and (mostly) anything that hasn’t made it into regularly scheduled blog content. Think of it as a look at the best new gear for guys, in a way. There are no rankings or categories here — just the best o’ the best. Curated by your humble team of one, it’ll cover a pretty solid spectrum of #menswear, and I hope to keep it rolling monthly — or heck, more frequently than that. One final note — as to our other recent series, Style Guide Recommends, you can look for another entry in the coming weeks. Until then, sit tight, follow me on Instagram, and shop The List!
